DEDICATION 




IN MEMORIAM 



Burr F. Jones 



IN MEMORIM 

by Mr. Mongan 

The measure of a man is to be found in the hearts of his friends. Those 
who know and love him, who cherish the same ideals and respect the 
same virtues can best understand the heart of him they call friend. And 
this, not in the sense of an appraisal, but rather with the warm-hearted 
gratitude that flows from the recognition that here is a man. 

All too often the self-effacing and self-denying qualities that are 
essential to true magnanimity obscure or conceal the real stature of a man, 
and it is not until the angel of death has swept away the nonessentials 
that true worth and dignity stand forth. For true achievement is not to 
be measured by material progress nor necessarily by any of the concomi- 
tants of materiality. 

Man's worth is of his spirit. 

Look, therefore, into your own hearts to find his kindly nature, his 
sympathy; search your minds to find the quick intelligence, the ready 
response, the directing energy which informed his nature and was trans- 
mitted to you by his example. Look into the eyes of the children and you 
will see the friendliness with which he looked upon them. For now that 
he is gone where else on this earth can we find him ? 

Those of us who worked with Mr. Jones, those of us who worked — 
as we all must — for the children, under his guidance, will miss him. 
The days as they pass will remind us of his smile, his gentle manner, 
his warm hand-clasp, his softspoken, heartening words. And whatever of 
sadness those memories may bring they will also bring the courage and 
the firm faith that emanated from him as he met his daily duties. From 
school to school, with teachers or with pupils, in his office, at committee 
meetings, in all his goings-out and comings-in, he shouldered more than 
his share of the problems that beset us all in trying to teach the young. 
Doggedly he set himself to work for the betterment of our schools that our 
children might have a chance at a better life. Patiently he listened to our 
troubles and bore with our complaints. And from him came no complaints 
— although his heart must often have been sore. He had to face his share 
of defeats and disappointments, and dismay must often have dogged his 
footsteps and invaded his thought. Yet somehow he found a way to go 
on — and to go forward. This last year of his illness ean teach us all much of 
what makes for grandeur' in human character. * . 

« 

Yet he was not paragon, no inhuman embodiment of perfection — 
aloof, austere. He wore his faults as becomingly as his Virtues, and in 
humility tried to make up for his- shortcomings. Thece was no ppetense 
about him, no "pose." He was — openly — what he was; and like most 
of us, wished, and worked, that h§ might be better. He was too Jfbnest 
to attempt to impress by reason of his position and authority, to© modest 
to put himself forward for public praise, too fair-minded to throw his 
shadow over Jellow-workers. 

His light should long illumine our lives. 







THE EDITORS' CORNER 



BALLET SLIPPERS 

They lie in the corner all tattered and worn. 

The color is faded; the leather is torn. 

But with these old slippers I never shall part. 

The mem'ries they bring back are close to my heart. 

For these are the slippers that I wore that night, 
The night that I danced 'neath the gleaming spotlight. 
I can see it before me, the stage all aglow; 
The audience expectant; the house lights turned low. 

I knew that my entrance was then very near, 
For out of the silence came music so clear. 
The curtain then parted, I made my debut — 
There was joy in my heart, I ne'er before knew. 

JOYCE CONTENTE 

Editor-in-Chief 

Class '53 



THE TELEPHONE 

I sit expectant all alone, 
Thoughts intent on the telephone. 
He said he'd call me on this day. 
I wonder what he'll have to say! 

Suppose that he will never call, 
That I won't hear from him at all. 
But let me tell you I won't cry 
O'er him who's left me high and dry. 

I'll find myself another man. 
You bet your life I surely can! 
A man who will be true to me, 
As kind and faithful as can be. 

But wait, is that the phone I hear? 

Hello, is that you Steve, my dear? 

Was I worried Why not at all. 

Of course I knew that you would call!

SNOWFLAKES 



WHISPER OF WIND 



The wild wind howls with fury 

As snowflakes leap about; 

Whirling, darting, twirling, 

They approach the ground with doubt. 

Of crystal, spectral hue, 
They dance before ice-laden trees, 
Then slowly, smoothly, wholly, 
They glide to the ground with ease. 

BARBARA WARNSMAN 

Class of '55 



O Whisper of Wind in a narrow street, 
Who can know your secret sweet? 
Who can remember that April is fleet? 
That December is lusty and long? 
Who can remember that April is gone? 
Distant vales of misty green, 
Will you come again 
O Whisper of Wind in a narrow street? 

KARIN S. ENGSTROM

BEST GIRL CITIZEN 

Each year high school seniors throughout the 
United States are asked by the National Society 
of Daughters of the American Revolution to 
choose from their class a girl who has proved 
herself to be their Best Girl Citizen. This year 
we have selected, on the basis of character, abil- 
ity, and service, Joyce Contente. 

Joyce has been unusually active during her 
three years of high school. A highest honor stu- 
dent, she is a member of the National Honor 
Society and Honor Group. As Editor-in-chief of 
the Pilgrim, Joyce has worked diligently this year. 
She is an active member of the Press Club, S.A.S., 
Glee Club, Octette, Sunsetters, and Dramatic 
Club. For three years she has served as a 10^ a 
week collector and has been a drum-majorette. 
Joyce was also chosen in her junior year to attend 
Girls' State. 

In recognition of Joyce's ability, her classmates 
have also chosen her as the Most Likely to Suc- 
ceed in the class. It is, therefore, with great pride 
that the Class of 1953 presents Joyce Contente as 
its best girl citizen. 




SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS 

Seated: Alfred Tedeschi, Treasurer; Phillip Carletti, President; Raymond Longhi, Vice- 
President; Patricia Baker, Secretary. 
Standing: Mrs. Miriam Raymond, Advisor.

CLASS HISTORY 



We, the Class of '53, 
Have made exciting history 
Since we entered Plymouth High 
Three years ago. How time does fly! 

As Sophomores we were not stunned 
By Record Hop and Jimmy Fund. 
We feel we had the best of hops. 
In Science Fair our mates were tops. 

In North Atlantic, sports, and such 
The Sophomores never lost their touch. 
It soon came time to end the year, 
And we selected girls to cheer. 

Vacation days were warm and bright, 
Though summer seemed like overnight. 
September came, the nights were cool. 
And we were Juniors, back in school. 

Then in the fall of '51, 

The fund for Palsy was begun. 

The high school band gave us a chance 

To view a concert, have a dance. 

In Science Fair and basketball, 
Our mates again were best of all. 
The Glee Club girls all went to sing 
With Mr. Fiedler, Symphony King. 

We had a Stardust Promenade; 
For Honor Society we worked hard. 
We saw Resort Town end the year. 
At last, vacation days were here. 

Ah, yes, those lovely summer days, 
To bask beneath the sun's bright rays, 
To play, to swim in water cool. 
But now, we must go back to school. 

At last, at last! We're Seniors now. 
To work our hardest is our vow; 
For we're to be a busy class 
With jobs for every lad and lass. 

Our first affair, the Last Chance Dance, 

The sale of tickets in advance, 

A million other things to do, 

With college boards and homework, too. 

Class officers we have to choose — 
With Phil to lead us, we can't lose! 
Class Poem to write and our Class Song - 
Then our Jam Session came along. 

We plan Commencement and Class Night. 
Excitement now has reached its height! 
We have a motto and a gift. 
And Freak Day gives us quite a lift. 

So many mem'ries to take away, 
So many things we want to say, 
But now's the time to bid good-bye 
And close the doors of Plymouth High.

CLASS PROPHECY 

I was on a plane bound for New York from Paris when the idea came. 
It had been ten years since we graduated from high school. Why not have 
a reunion? 

In New York, I caught a plane for Plymouth, and was met at the 
airport by Donald Coombs, Mayor of Plymouth. He thought that my 
idea was great, and suggested that I see Danny Beaton, millionaire marine 
insurance tycoon, about it. Parked in front of the Beaton Buiding were 
two Caddy convertibles, which Donald said belonged to that brilliant 
team of accountants, Marilyn Clarke and Constance Hadaway. 

I was admitted to Danny's office by Sally Eldridge, his private sec- 
retary. Danny was a little dubious about a reunion, however, as he said 
that the members of the class were scattered from Berlin to Tokyo. It 
was then that I decided to fly around the world and see the class myself. 

First, however, I had an engagement to keep with the Plymouth 
PT.A. The annual national gathering was being held in Plymouth, and 
I had been asked to lecture on Parisian fashions. On my way through 
town, Francis Vancini, owner of the hot rod of the year, zoomed past me 
in his new Jag. As I lectured that afternoon, I realized that there could 
almost be a reunion in the P.T.A. Donna Balboni, Wanda Burgess, Pat 
Carmichael, Pat Carr, Doris Jones, Cleta LaRocque, Connie Jennings, Joan 
Lexner, Janet Linde, Lois Stringer, and Eleanor Travers had all come, 
some from all over the country. After the meeting, someone mentioned 
the new high school that was being built, and a few of us drove over to 
see it. David Nichols, successful surveyor, was there talking with Eliza- 
beth Anderson, Dean of Women at the high school. I was surprised to 
see Robert Viella and Erwin Roberson, co-owners of a national string of 
garages, talking with Elizabeth and Dave. They wondered if I had seen 
Allan Cotti, who had just become Vice-President of the Cordage Company. 

I left Plymouth, and drove to that buzzing, new metropolis, Carver. 
At the town hall, I was met by Selectman, Alan Roby, who had been talk- 
ing with Richard Arponen and Arnold Jokenin, men of affairs about town. 
Alan said that I could probably find a few of the class members in Boston. 
Danny had mentioned that Ted Swenson was at Harvard, and Alan agreed 
that he was the man to see. I phoned Ted to see when he would be free, 
and I recognized the long distance operator's voice as Marie MacMahon's. 
Ted was free, and I started for Boston. I turned on the car radio, and was 
astonished to hear radio commentator, Dave Keay, announce that Sec- 
retary of State, Patricia Baker, was flying to Washington for a special 
conference with the President. 

At Harvard, I met Ted, professor of observation and reflection. He 
told me that Catherine Alves, expert psychologist, was also at Harvard. 
We found Adele Vadini, Dr. of English at Radcliffe, and headed for Fen- 
way Park, The Red Sox were having a winning year, and no wonder, 
for at Fenway Park, we found Bruce Mason, Red Sox Manager, Erving 
Wall, homerun slugger, and Robert Gavoni, rookie of the year. The Red 
Sox won, of course, and after the game we ate at Durgin Park where we 
saw Pat Smiley, the first girl to play pro baseball, and Prilly Tilson, 
whose paintings on exhibit in the Museum of Fine Arts had been an out- 



standing success. They told us that Virginia Smith, superintendent of the 
Little Wanderer's Home, and Jeane Soares, advertising director at Jor- 
dan's, had just left. 

As long as I would be in New York a while before flying to London, 
where Joan Carton, heiress and world traveller had last been seen, I 
found Roberta Randall there, who told me that she was having a big 
party in her penthouse apartment that night. She and Bob Buckingham 
were currently starring in that musical smash-hit, "A Guy for a Gal." 

The party was already roaring when I arrived. Ronald Cavicchi, play- 
boy, was standing in the middle of the room, surrounded by beautiful 
women. Among them were Margaret Reudiger, Miss America, Claire 
Baratta, one of the ten best-dressed U. S. women, and Karrylle Rovatti, 
the hairdresser who introduced the "shaggy dog" haircut that swept the 
country. I could see Notre Dame football coach, Phil Carletti, explaining 
his winning plays to commercial artist, George Lewis. Joyce Busi, the 
famous Broadway actress, was being dramatic, and Bob Buckingham was 
mimicking her, encouraged by Bev Tassinari and Dick Sturtevant, top 
efficiency experts, and Susan Bailey, Dr. of fashion at Cornell. Suddenly, 
Shirley Garuti, buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue, screamed and pointed to 
the T. V. set. Diane Brenner, T. V. comic, was presenting her weekly, 
hour-long program. Our class certainly had met with success in New York, 
and when "Tut" mentioned that two or three classmates were in Wash- 
ington, I decided to see what momentous events were happening there. 

As I stepped from the plane, I felt that I was being watched, but it 
was only F. B. I. agents, Dennis Longtin and Charlie Paine. With them 
was Ronald Nogueira, criminal lawyer, who invited me to accompany 
them to a reception being given by Ambassador to Turkey, Dave Santos. 
Ronald's private secretaries, Marilia Corvelo andJeanne Dries, came along 
also. The first person I noticed at the reception was Bob Pillsbury, Presi- 
dent of G. M. C, and a probable choice for our next secretary of defense. 
Talking with him was Ben Cohen, leading DuPont chemist, and Herbert 
Hoover's assistant secretary, Lucille Alsapiedi. Lucille was about to leave 
for her vacation in Palm Beach, and asked me to go with her. There we 
were treated to a dizzy round of swimming pools, parties, and night spots 
by those madcap play girls. Jane Dempsey, Bette Pimental and Marcia 
Scagliarini. 

However, I had the world to cover, and I left Sunny Florida for foggy 
London. My pilot over the Atlantic Ocean was none other than Don 
Weaver. We landed safely in London, and I found Linny Priestley, New 
York Times foreign correspondent. We met Jack Corbett, U. S. Ambas- 
sador to England and Janet McCosh, London buyer for Bonwit Teller in 
New York. They had seen Joan Carton a few weeks before, but thought 
that she was somewhere in Argentina at this time 

The following day I took a boat across the channel, and was amazed 
to find myself crossing with Bill Harney, who had won a trip to Europe on 
a quiz program. 

In Paris, I found that the new IL N. Building had made fantastic pro- 
gress. And no wonder! With architect, Curtis Tibbetts, electrician, Rich- 
ard Moore, and master plumber, Joe Ferreira working on it, progress was 
a sure thing. The toasted dancer, Joyce Contente, was featured at the Fol- 
lies Bergere, and as I watched the show that evening, I talked with the 
United Nations interpreter, Sheila Clough, and the famous designer, Nancy 
Morse. They had just returned from Berlin, where a number of our boys 
in the Air Force were stationed. 



Of course, Berlin was my next stop. There I found two famous Ameri- 
can entertainers, vocalist, Jan Davis, and that great tenor man, Robert 
Wager, doing a benefit show for the servicemen. In the jammed hall, I 
spotted Karl Brofski, Dave Mello, Steven Sands, and Frederick Silva. 
Frances Dunham and Barbara Halunen were both captains in the Wom- 
an's Air Force, and they told me that they had been shipped over from a 
Texas base where Isabelle Silvia, Phyllis Northrup, Ronald Cotti, Wil- 
liam Gilbert, Robert Manfredi, and that daredevil jet test pilot, Joseph 
Fontes, were stationed. 

From Berlin, I flew to Rome where I saw Joyce Barlow, Latin trans- 
lator, and the surrealist painter, Frank Nunes. They told me that I had 
just missed Ginny Colas, U. S. Ambassador to Greece, who had recently 
left for Athens. 

During a quick stop in Africa, I was presented with an exotic leopard 
skin by big game hunter, Larry Mansfield. At his suggestion, I flew to 
Tokyo, where I found that the Pilgrims had landed ! Mario Crociati, fam- 
ous bandleader, was there doing shows for the G. I.'s. Arthur Freeland, 
former Mayor of Manomet, Wallace Ruas, Vincent Zupperoli, and Rich- 
ard Davis, all potential four star generals, were there serving Uncle Sam. 
Alfred Vieira, who was doing radio broadcasting off Red Chnia, was among 
them. Army nurse, Betty Northrup, had just left on a hospital plane headed 
for the United States. 

I was homeward bound, too, and in Seattle I found engineers, Karl 
Anderson and Al Tedeschi, who were building a government dam on the 
Columbia River. Al would probably be a congressman after the next 
election, and Karl had recently refused an offer to coach basketball at 
Washington State. The Navy had taken over Seattle, and the Plymouth 
boys had taken over the Navy. Admiral Robert Alberghini and Seamen 
George Barrett, Paul Bates, and Frederick Sherman were found in a night 
club which featured that "gone" musician, William Zucchelli. 

The following day, in Los Angeles, I saw the movie Lover starring 
Shirley Ferreira and Ray Longhi. It was hot, and I went to the beach 
where I found Dexter DeBrusk, Hollywood Producer, his secretaries, Jan- 
ice Cristani, Diantha Gould, and Lillian Mansfield, and Francis Rogers, 
who retired at twenty. Nancy Owens had just persuaded Dexter that she 
should have the lead in his forth-coming picture, The Vamp. Of course, 
the conversation veered to the current sensation, America's Einstein, Leo 
Cadorette, who was doing brilliant work on the H-bomb at Los Alamos. 

The flight back to New York was almost an Old Home Day. Dr. Carlin 
and his secretary, Elaine Barboza, were flying to a convention in Chicago. 
Robert Simmons, author of The Quiet Man, and Joanne Fillebrown, fam- 
ous poetess, were seated across the table. The weather was bad, and as we 
landed in Chicago, our flight ended in a not-too-serious accident, thanks to 
the quick thinking of hostesses Sally Korth and Joan Fortini. We were 
rushed to the Cecilia Jacobs Hospital for a routine checkup, where nurse 
Caroline Dittmar was on duty. 

In New York once more, I went to a secretaries' convention where I 
lectured and afterwards saw Sally Mazilli, Marion McGuiness, Carol Proc- 
tor, Cynthia Smith, and Ruth Torrence. They were all New York career 
girls, and as they drove off in their Cadillacs, I wondered why I had chosen 
Paris, but after all, for a top fashion retailer, Paris is the world !

SCHOOL NEWS 



SEPTEMBER — 

Back to school! We welcomed the new sophomores at an S.A.S. spon- 
sored "Get Together Dance" early in the month. 

Soon after with his "Revelations of Wrestling," Mr. Bertrand Shurt- 
liffe amused us all — except perhaps the unlucky football players on whom 
Mr. Shurtliffe demonstrated his holds! 





OCTOBER — 

The student body enjoyed an interesting lec- 
ture entitled "Citizenship" given by the Direc- 
tor of Civic Education in Massachusetts. 

Halloween found us dancing in the gymna- 
sium to the music of Joe Mondeaux at the S.A.S.'s 
second successful dance of the year. 



NOVEMBER — 

The senior class made their social debut al 

a dance held in the gymnasium on the 21st, which 

featured the "Hill Billy and Fillies." The dance 

was a "Last Chance" for the P. H. S. females to 

catch their favorite males be- 

for Leap Year was over, and 

they were happy to announce 

that it was a great success! 

• At our Thanksgiving Day 

assembly, we heard several 
short speeches about the Pil- 
grims and enjoyed the accom-

DECEMBER — 

A beautifully decorated Christmas 
tree helped to make the Yuletime dance 
a memorable occasion. A large num- 
ber of students attended this dance held 
on the last night before Christmas va- 
cation. 

The beauties of California and other 
Western states were vividly portrayed 
to us via the colored films of Miss Iris 
Albertini in our Christmas assembly. 
Miss Albertini narrated the films which 
had been taken during her cross coun- 
try trip in the summer of 1952. The 
Octette presented a few selections, and 
a poem was recited by Shirley Ron- 
carati. 

JANUARY — 

In an S.A.S. assembly Mr. Harvy 
Davies, "The Clown of Music," played 
many different interpretations of the 
"Marines Hymn" as he had heard it 
played on a recent round the world 
tour. 

FEBRUARY — 

Ira Carlin was judged winner of the 
17th Annual American Legion Oratori- 
cal Contest. We were proud of Ira when 
he went on to win the district contest at 
Bridgewater State Teachers College. 

MARCH — 

Aces and kings magically dis- 
appeared and reappeared when Mr. Erv 
Wermont gave us an exhibition of card 
tricks. Clues on how to spot the fav- 
orite tricks of card swindlers were ex- 
posed by Mr- Wermont in an assembly 
sponsored by the S. A. S. 

The very impressive assembly of the 
National Honor Society was presented 
this month. Short speeches were given 
by each of the old members of the Nat- 
ional Honor Society. Then the newly 
elected members were installed. 






ANDREE STRAKER MEMORIAL FUND 





The student body voted again to undertake some charitable project 
this year as they have done for the past few years. The organization which 
the students decided to contribute to was the Mary Hayes MacArthur 
Memorial Foundation. The students called this project the Andree Stra- 
ker Memorial Fund in memoriam to Andree Straker, a former student of 
Plymouth High School who recently died of polio. 

In March delegates of the Polio Fund collectors, with Miss Downey, 
their advisor, Mr. Welch, Superintendent of Plymouth schools, Mr. Mon- 
gan, our Principal, and Mr. and Mrs. Straker, visited the Mary Hayes Mac- 
Arthur Memorial Hospital. Mr. Straker made the formal presentation of 
$500 to Helen Hayes, who graciously received the group and took them on 
a tour around the hospital. The check for $500 was half of the money 
which the students contributed to the Fund. Later in the year another 
$500 was sent to Miss Hayes.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES SOCIETY 

The varied activities of the Student Activities Society of Plymouth 
High School are organized by the Student Council. The officers of the 
council are: Mario Crociati, President; John Vancini, Vice-President; Lois 
Kierstead, Secretary; and Joanne Goodwin, Treasurer. 

The Student Activities Society project undertaken for the school year 
1952-1953 was the collection of $1,000 on a "Penny a Day" basis, to be given 
in memory of Andree Straker to the Mary McArthur Polio Center in Wel- 
lesley, Mass. The chairman of this project was Lucille Alsapiedi. 

The Student Council has presented many interesting and varied assem- 
blies to the school throughout the year. The Council has also sponsored 
several enjoyable dances. Details of these assemblies and dances have 
been given on the page of school news. 

The school held an election for the President of the United States, 
the Governor of Massachusetts, and the U. S. Senator from Massachusetts 
on November 4, which was arranged by the Student Council. The coun- 
cil also made the plans for the students to view the inauguration on tele- 
vision on January 20. 

In April, representatives and delegates from the SA.S. attended a 
Student Council convention held in Attleboro. At the meeting held there, 
one of our delegates invited the various Student Councils to hold their 
fall convention in Plymouth. Our invitation was graciously accepted; and 
plans have been made for the occasion by the members of this year's 
Council. 

Miss Ellen Downey, the officers, and members of the Student Council 
of the Student Activities Society sincerely hope that you, the students of 
P.H.S. have enjoyed our efforts.

SCIENCE SEMINAR 

Twice a month on Monday afternoons the two-year-old Biology Sci- 
ence Seminar can be seen discussing anything from racoons to molds. 
Sponsored by Mr. Young, the Seminar provides a means for members to 
further their interest and knowledge of the biological sciences, to con- 
tribute to the study of biology in Plymouth High School, and to assist 
members in purusing biological research. Limited to approximately ten 
members, each meeting is arranged and conducted by a chairman. The 
chairman calls for several reviews of scientific articles and a biography of 
some great scientist, living or dead. This year the group had as one of its 
guests Dr. Reed of Boston University, who talked with them and presented 
some new ideas for science projects. Mr. Donald Welch, the superintendent 
of the Plymouth schools, was also a guest. Having seen many project 
demonstrations by biology students, the Science Seminar acted as the gen- 
eral committee for the Science Fair,

week of the school year, the P.H.S. "roving reporters" may be seen scurry- 
ing around the corridors interviewing teachers, investigating sports events, 
writing up assemblies and social affairs, and, in general, compiling any 
bits of school information which may be of interest to the public. Then, 
assoon as all of the information has been checked, it's off to the press with 
the news.

Gridiron Review 

On September 27 Plymouth High 
opened its footbaball season against 
the high-spirited Bridgewater eleven. 
Playing under a new coach, Bridge- 
water smashed to its first victory in 
three seasons. Plymouth fumbled 
three times within their own 30-yard 
line; and these fumbles proved 
costly, as Bridgewater recovered and 
turned them into touchdowns. Final 
score: Bridgewater 20 — Plymouth 6. 

A desperate pass with but twelve 
seconds left gave Rockland a 18-14 
victory over Plymouth High at 
Standish Avenue Field on Saturday, 
Oct. 4, 1952. Plymouth led 7-6 when 
Rockland drove over for a score with 
two minutes to play. After the kick- 
off, Plymouth came back to score on 
three plays to lead 14-12. Then came 
the long pass which gave Rockland 
the contest. It was a sad day for 
Plymouth football fans. 



Plymouth High won its first ball 
game of the year on Oct. 11 when 
they turned back Middleboro High 
at Middleboro. Plymouth scored 
first in the second period after a 
march of 83 yards. At the half P.H.S. 
led 12-0. The Blue and White scored 
again as the third period opened. At 
this point, Middleboro came to life 
and scored its lone T. D. Plymouth 
scored again in the fourth period and 
went on to win 24-7. 

A strong Whitman team was met 
by Plymouth on Oct. 18 at Whitman. 
Coach Spath really wanted this game 
with the "Red Devils from the 
North." Each team scored in the first 
period, but Whitman drove over in 
the second period for a 13-7 halftime 
lead. Plymouth took a 14-13 lead in 
Ihe third quarter. The last Whitman 
threat ended on the goal line when 
P.H.S. recovered a fumble. Plym- 
outh went on to score a third T. D. 
and win 30-13. 

Plymouth High won its first home 
game of the year when it turned back 
Abington High 22-0 on Oct. 25. The 
Plymouth grid machine scored twice 
in the second period after a rather 
slow start. Plymouth added a safety 
and another touchdown in the third 
period. The lone Abington threat 
came in the fourth period on the 
Plymouth goal line, but the Blue and 
White stopped the threat and took 
possession as the whistle sounded. 

In a strictly defensive contest, 
Plymouth played host to Hingham on 
Nov. 1. Penalties and fumbles 
turned back each threat during the 
first half, which ended in a scoreless 
tie. Strong defences controlled play 
in the third period- Midway through 
the final period Plymouth attempted 
a pass, half thrown and half blocked. 
A Hingham defensive player took the 
ball in mid air, and raced over for 
a T. D. This break gave Hingham a 
7-0 victory.

Barnstable High invaded Plymouth on Nov. 8 at Standish Avenue, 
The Cape Cod team released a terrific offensive attack and had a 14-1 
lead at halftime. The only Plymouth offensive came in the third when 
they marched for a score. Barnstable was not to be denied victory as 
they went on to score twice more and hold Plymouth in check. Final 
score: Barnstable 27 — Plymouth 6. 



Plymouth played its last game on November 15 at New Bedford 
against "Voke." Plymouth started slow and at half time were behind 
13-6. After the second half kickoff, Plymouth marched to the "Voke" 
28 and here fumbled. This proved to be the turning point as New Bedford 
scored twice more, P.H.S. scored in vain in the fourth quarter. Final 
score: New Bedford 26 — Plymouth 12.

reira, Elizabeth Bobb. 



CHEERLEADERS 

With five "greenies" and three experienced girls, the Plymouth cheer- 
leaders stepped out in snappy new uniforms this fall to cheer our teams 
to victory. With the first few games went the nervousness of the new, 
and our girls were soon performing at a top rate. Under captain Elaine 
Barboza, seniors Lucille Alsapiedi and Shirley Ferreira, and juniors Karin 
Engstrom, Elizabeth Bobb, Jeanette Brenner, Shirley Roncarati, and Syl- 
via Sheehan introduced some snappy new cheers which the student body 
of P.H.S. quickly picked up. Basketball season had the girls out in the 
familiar blue jumpers to aid our high scoring team. Our new director, 
Miss Knight, an avid supporter of girls' sports, had the girls cheering for 
the girls' hockey and basketball games. The attendance immediately went 
up ! 

All in all the girls have made themselves definite assets to P.H.S. and 
we are all waiting to see them next year. 






Court Courage 

A small but speedy Whitman quin- 
tet turned back the Plymouth High 
hoopsters with a score of 56-48 at 
Whitman on January 16. Plymouth 
to a halftime lead of 24-21. In the 
second half, Whitman began to score 
steadily. With a half a minute to 
play, Plymouth trailed 50-48. At- 
tempting to gain possession of the 
ball, Plymouth committed several 
fouls. As the sixth straight Whitman 
foul shot dropped through the hoop, 
the buzzer sounded. 

Plymouth High turned on the 
steam on January 20 by turning back 
Middleboro High 67-53 at Memorial 
Hall. Both teams played airtight 
ball the first half, with Plymouth on 
top by only a 30-29 score. In the 
second half, however, Plymouth 
dropped the ball through the hoop 
from all angles and romped on to 
victory. 

Unable to overcome an early Fair- 
haven lead, Plymouth High bowed to 
a strong Fairhaven team on January 
23. Finding it difficult to get used 



to the small court, Plymouth fell 
behind 31 - 17 after the quarter. 
Through the second, third, and most 
of the fourth periods, Plymouth 
matched the speedy sailors. How- 
ever, foul shots boosted the score in 
the last three minutes. The final 
score was Fairhaven 80, Plymouth 
57. 

Shooting from the floor was ter- 
rific as Plymouth trounced Rockland 
on January 27 at Rockland High 
School. The Blue and White team led 
at the half 35-12. At the end of the 
third period with Plymouth ahead 53- 
23, Coach Nunez replaced his start- 
ing five, and even this team coasted 
home by outscoring Rockland 21-12 
in the last quarter. 

Plymouth fought hard but was un- 
able to catch a fine working Hing- 
ham team at the Hingham Armory 
on January 30. Midway in the sec- 
ond quarter, Hingham took a ten 
point lead but lost it minutes later. 
Plymouth trailed 42-40 at the half. 
P.H.S. remained two or three points 
behind through, and, in the final two 
minutes, Hingham pulled away. The 
final score was Hingham 79, Plym- 
outh 70. 

Again under the reins of Coach 
Hank Rogers, Plymouth High downed 
Abington at Memorial Hall. Plym- 
outh took an early twelve point lead, 
but in the second half Abington cut 
the gap to five points. Plymouth 
then put on a burst of speed and 
coasted to the final whistle. Score: 
Plymouth 64, Abington 53. 

Plymouth High got revenge for an 
early-season setback from Whitman 
by trouncing the "Red Raiders" at 
Memorial Hall on February 6. At the 
half Plymouth led 30-28 in what ap- 
peared to be a tight contest; but in 
period three, Whitman fell far behind 
and was unable to get back in the 
game. Plymouth 65, Whitman 50 was 
the final score.

The Blue and White came from behind to turn back Middleboro in a 
game on February 10 in the small Middleboro gym. Plymouth led at the 
end of the first period, but at the half they were ten points down 43-32. 
In the third period, Plymouth scoring went wild as they overtook and 
passed the Orange and Black. The fourth period was slow with Plymouth 
remaining on top. The game ended with a score of 85 to 75. 

Wareham High overcame a first period ten point deficit to defeat 
Plymouth High 56-53 at the Wareham gym. Plymouth made a fast start 
with a 19-9 in the first period, but had fallen slightly behind by the half, 
the score being Wareham 27, Plymouth 24. At the end of the third period, 
the score was deadlocked at 43 all. In the last quarter, Wareham showed 
great strength. Then Plymouth came back with a last minute rally, but 
the scoring fell just short of victory. 



It was victory for Plymouth 
High from the opening gun over 
Rockland at Memorial Hall on the 
17th of February. The Blue and 
White led 28-16 at the half. Plym- 
outh really piled up points in the 
last two quarters. As the final buz- 
zer sounded, Plymouth had a total 
of 64 points to Rockland's 36. 

Fairhaven High proved too strong 
for Plymouth High at Memorial Hall 
on February 20, as they topped the 
Blue and White with a score of 55- 
45. Fairhaven jumped off to a 15-6 
first period lead. Plymouth came 
back and was only three points down 
at the half, Plymouth still trailed 
at the three-quarter mark by only 
two points. In the last period Fair- 
haven, then leading by one point, 
put a freeze on the ball, which en- 
abled them to increase their lead 
with foul shots till the end of the 
game. 

Plymouth High closed its regular 
basketball season with a very im- 
pressive 66-61 win over Hingham at 
Memorial Hall on February 24. The 
best performance of the entire sea- 
son was turned in by Plymouth. The 
team trailed in the first quarter 17- 
13, but reached a 28-28 tie at half- 
time. At the three-quarter mark, it 
was 46-44 in favor of P. H. S. The 
home towners remained ahead 
throughout the rest of the game. 

In the opening round of the South 
Shore Tournament, Plymouth turned 
back a winless Oliver Ames five 65-42 
at Bridgewater. Plymouth to a first 
period lead, but the Oliver Ames 
team of Northeastern High had a 
strong second period and cut the 



lead to 30-28. Plymouth really 
opened up in the third quarter, go- 
ing ahead 49-31. Most of the last 
period was played by the Plymouth 
reserves, who still outscored the 
weak Oliver Ames quintet. 

Playing one of the finest jgames of 
the season, Plymouth swept past 
Canton High in the quarter finals of 
the South Shore Tournament. After 
a rocky first quarter, the Blue and 
White team began to work together 
and moved into a 25-19 halftime lead. 
Plymouth slowed down a little in 
period three, but managed to main- 
tain a 37-31 lead. The Plymouth boys 
gave an excellent performance and 
came out on top 55-42. 

In the semi-final round of the 
South Shore Conference, Plymouth 
moved past a favored North Attle- 
boro five 68-49 at the Bridgewater 
gym. The first quarter was very 
slow with Plymouth leading 11-8. The 
roof fell in on North Attleboro in the 
second period as P.H,S. outscored 
them 27-6. to lead 38-14 at the half. 
North played well in the third quar- 
North played well in the third per- 
iod, scoring 22 points, but Plymouth 
played a good fourth quarter to fin- 
ish strong. 

Plymouth High was far below par 
in the finals of the South Shore Tour- 
ney at Braintree on March 6, as they 
bowed to Hingham High 69-46. The 
first period was close with Hingham 
on top 14-11, but at halftime Plym- 
outh had fallen nine points behind 
31-22. The Hingham quintet was red 
hot in the second half, and they 
turned the game into a rout. It was 
a sad final for the Plymouth Five.

CROSS COUNTRY AT P. H. S. 

Plymouth High's Cross Country team enjoyed one of its most success- 
ful seasons this year, closing with a creditable record of four victories and 
two defeats. 

The Blue and White started off on the wrong foot on October 6 by 
losing to Rockland High at Rockland in its first seasonal competition. 
Plymouth's harriers, however, showed great promise, and better things 
were anticipated on October 14, when Plymouth played host to Middle- 
boro. It was a hard-fought battle all the way over the IVi mile course, and 
Plymouth emerged victorious, 26 to 29. 

Brockton came to Plymouth on October 17, and the Rogersmen, ham- 
pered by injuries, bowed to the Shoetowners, 18 to 37. On the 20th of the 
month the Blue and White journeyed to Middleboro, and won by the same 
score the week before, 25 to 29. 

Plymouth played host to Whitman on the 27th of October, and this 
meet proved to be the most exciting contest of the year, with Plymouth 
coming out on top, 26 to 27. 

The date of the State Meet in Boston was November 1, and although 
no Plymouth runner placed, several of our cross-country men participated 
with distinction. 

The Blue and White ended it regular season November 3 by defeating 
Whitman High, 18 to 37, at Whitman. 

On October 12, a small delegation of our lads traveled to Rockland for 
the Annual District Meet, and two Shiretowners, Eddie Lopes and Sopho- 
more flash Don Medara, placed in the first ten. 

All in all, as noted above, this was a most successful season. The 
admirable job of coaching Mr. Rogers turned in in his first year as coach, 
and the fine spirit and sportmanship displayed by our harriers will long be 
remembered at P. H. S.

I LIKE AMERICA BECAUSE- 

I like America because of the things we take for granted, the little 
things which we accept as part of our day-to-day living — those things, 
to us as natural as breathing, the lack of which has smothered freedom in 
some unhappy parts of the world. 

We go to church. Catholic, Protestant, or Jew, Mohammedan, Bud- 
dhist, or Mormon, we go without interference, without fear, as our con- 
science dictates. Or we stay at home, unheeding and forgetful — but, go 
or stay, in either case, the smooth flow of our lives goes on. We scarcely 
give the privilege of attending church a thought. 

We go to school. Cheerful and willing, or complaining and resisting, 
we face our teachers each school day to learn or to loaf, our lives so 
secure and peaceful that failure to get bid to "the Prom" can be a tragedy. 
We accept our right to education so unthinkingly that often we rebel 
against it, neglect it, waste it. The opportunities and inspirations, the 
friendships, the ambitions, are all so closely woven into our lives that we 
cannot imagine life without them. 

We talk as we like and as we feel. Generally we talk too much and we're 
not too well informed on what we say. And our talk is too often critical, 
harshly critical, unkind. Whether we talk ("air our opinions") about base- 
ball or movie stars, ward politician or President, no "thought" police 
threaten us. We take to freedom of speech so naturally and freely that 
we'd be lost without it. 

We go where we please, when we please. Freedom of movement with- 
out police permit, security measures, or travel orders is inbred in us. From 
coast to coast, from Gulf to Canada, we roam at will without a thought of 
registering at a police station or "showing our papers." Our policemen 
are our guides and friends. 

We can make friends. Unfettered by politics, economics, or religion 
we make friends according to our living. No thought of money, social pres- 
tige, or advantage concerns us. No fear of reprisals, no need for protection 
from those in power has to be kept in mind. Friendship in our friendly 
land is that — just friendship. 

And so the little things become big, become the basic pattern of our 
lives. If we could not take them for granted, our lives, our homes, and 
nation would be under the shadow of suspicion and fear. I like America 
because, little or big, these are the things that make our lives.

Boston Herald Essay Contest 



THE TOOTHACHE 
(With Apologies to Shakespeare) 

To pull it out or not. That is the question — 

Whether 'tis better for the jaw to suffer 

The stings and pains of an aching tooth 

Ot to take steel against a host of troubles, 

And, by extracting, end them? To pull — to tug? 

No more: and by a pull to say we end 

The toothache and the thousand natural ills 

The jaw is heir to. 'Tis a cosummation 

Devoutly to be wished! To pull — to tug! 

To pull — perchance to break! Ay! there's the rub, 

For in that tug what pains may come 

When we have half pulled out the stubborn tooth, 

Must give us pause. There's the respect 

That makes of an aching tooth a calamity. 

For who would bear the pangs and stings of pain, 

The whole mouth's torture, the dentist's contumely, 

The thought of hope deferred, kind sleep's delay. 

Necessity for pity, and the spurns 

The patient from the healthy takes, 

When he himself might his quietus make 

For a few dollars? Who would these fardels bear, 

To groan and sink beneath the weight of pain — 

But that the dread of something lodged within, 

The pain extracted by the dentist's forceps. 

No calm and carefree moment, — puzzle the mind, 

And we choose to bear the ills and pains we have 

Than go to others that may aid us. 

The dentist can make cowards of us all, 

And thus the native hue of resolution 

Is sicklied o'er with the grim thought of pain; 

And many a person who seeks the dentist's door 

For fear of suffering basely turns away, 

Frightened at the name of a dentist 

RAYMOND LONGHI 



YEARNING 
I'm dreaming of the summertime, of sailing and the sea; 
And all the happy times that these things meant to me. 
Long ago and far away I hardly knew that life could be 
So full of gaiety and laughter, fanciful and free. 

I hardly dared to dream about the parties on the beach, 
And then I could not realize the joys within my reach. 
And with the passing of each year, I still hope to return 
To all those joyous, happy days for which I'll always yearn. 

JANICE DAVIS 



ON THE THRESHOLD 
The future waits outside the door 

Beyond our high schol days, 
Which we now leave — prepared we are 

To wend our separate ways. 

When we open the doors of tomorrow 

And leave it unlocked behind us, 
We'll keep our motto in our hearts 

To guide and to remind us 

That what we gain of success in life 

Can come because God is granting 
Reward for deeds that are well done, 

The harvest of our planting. 

CONSTANCE HADAWAY 



TRAVEL 



DUTY 



The siren song of travel 

Is constantly sung to me; 

It is sung by the mountains and valleys, 

And sung by the deep, dark sea. 

It comes to me in the dead of night, 
It comes to me at dawn, 
It comes to me in the afternoon 
Always whispering, "Let's be gone." 

I know not how to stop it, 
I do not dare give in — 
But, perhaps when I get older, 
The spirit of travel will win. 

RONALD NOGUEIRA 



In the heart of every girl 
There lies a pure and precious pearl; 
A gift of God bestowed at birth 
To guide ther through her life on earth: 
Her sense of duty. 

At a very early age 
Temptation looms to blot a page 
In her life. She, so young in years, 
Harbors wicked thoughts; yet fears 
To fail her duty. 

If she is weak, and lacks the pow'r 
To struggle in her needy hour, 
She will succumb, and go astray — 
And then regret she lost the way 
To heed her duty. 

But, if she's strong and brave and true, 
She will be good, and join the few 
Who stand above the teeming crowd. 
And shout with voices clear and loud, 
"I've done my duty!" 

ADELE VANDINI 



THE GREAT CHANGE 

I have a brother six years old 
Of whom I should be fond; 
But how can I at seventeen 
Approve a miniature atom-bomb? 

In our dwelling, for six long years 
I have suffered this mighty-mouse. 
The time has come to set the trap 
And stop his rule of our house. 

We talk, we scold, we punish. 
We ask him to please remember 
That, when the clock says 6:45, 
Our house admits a new member. 

This is the time of transformation, 

He becomes a kind little boy; 

From now to bedtime there will be peace, — 

For this short time he's our greatest joy. 

DAVID KEAY 



LOW TIDE 

I've watched the waning tide depart 
And looked upon the sea, 
It seemed there was no beauty there, — 
It brought no joy to me. 

Within the sheltered harbor shores, 
The ebb tide left behind 
A scene of desolation grim. 
No splendour could I find. 

Expanse of mud and reed and rock, 
A swamp of dismal brown, — 
Where is the sky-blue water now, 
Where wind and waves abound? 

A quiet stillness fills the air, 
The channel wanders through, 
The white-washed gulls are hovering, 
All wait for nature's cue. 

The surging tide brings slowly in, 
With secrets from the deep, 
A blanket, shot with silver, for 
The shallows while they sleep. 

You cannot love the the ocean well, 
All Plymouth vows 'tis true, 
Until you know within your heart 
You love the mud flats, too. 

SALLY ELDRIDGE 




OUR FRE 



I. Bon voyage! 
On Tuesday, March 3, 1953, our 
French III class took the train to 
Boston to enjoy what we call "Our 
French Day." 




II. Devant le restaurant 

Our first stop after arriving in 
Boston was a charming French tea- 
room called "La Duchesse Anne." 
Here, in the above photo, we are 
eagerly anticipating our French 
meal. 



III. A la cuisine 

We visited the kitchen and asked 
if we could take a picture of the 
chefs. With a nod of their heads 
and a "Oui, Mam'selle" they kindy 
allowed us to do so. 




NCH DAY 




IV: Pendant le repas 

Four our lunch we had diced 
chicken en tartelette and French 
coffee, a meal definitely a credit 
to the chefs. 




V: Au dessert 

Very popular was all dessert, 
especially the small vanilla and 
chocolate eclairs, cream puffs, and 
apple meringue pudding. No won- 
der such smiles! 




VI. Un bon film 

We then went to the Exeter 
Theatre where we saw a truly 
delightful French movie, "Forbid- 
den Games," which received the 
1952 International Award for the 
best foreign film of the year.

GETTYSBURG ADDRESS 

WITH APOLOGIES TO ABRAHAM LINCOLN 

Forescore and quite a few year ago, the Latin language was brought 
forth in Rome; conceived in exceptions and dedicated to confusing the 
student. Now we are engaged in a great translation, testing whether one 
pupil or any pupil so bored and so confused can long endure. We are met 
in a lowly classroom of that language. We have come to learn a portion 
of that language as a final effort of Miss Wilbur who has almost given her 
life so that Latin might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we 
should learn this. But in a larger sense, we cannot comprehend, we can- 
not change, we cannot destroy this language. The Romans living and dead 
have destroyed far above our power to add or detract. 

Rome might little note nor long remember what I say here, but I hope 
Miss Wilbur will soon forget what I do here. It is for the coming student, 
rather, to be warned of this slave labor against which previous students 
have so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to dig in to this work before 
us that from these Romans we may take up a new interest in this lan- 
guage so that all these Romans should not have thought up this language 
in vain. That the Latin language shall have new birth under Miss Wilbur 
and it shall not perish from the earth.
